Ammonium benzoate Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

White crystalline powder

Uses

To preserve glue and latex.

General Description

A white crystalline solid. Soluble in water. The primary hazard is the threat to the environment. Immediate steps should be taken to limit spread to the environment. Used in medicine and as a food preservative.

Air & Water Reactions

Water soluble.

Reactivity Profile

Avoid strong mineral acids and strong alkalis. Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Irritating and toxic ammonia gas and other nitrogen compounds or oxides of carbon may form in fires [USCG, 1999].

Health Hazard

Inhalation of dust may irritate nose. Contact with eyes causes irritation. Ingestion leads to nausea and vomiting.

Fire Hazard

Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Irritating and toxic ammonia gas and other nitrogen compounds or oxides of carbon may form in fires.

Safety Profile

Poison by ingestion andintravenous routes. When heated to decomposition itemits toxic vapors of NOx and NH3.

Purification Methods

Crystallise it from EtOH. [Beilstein 9 IV 273.]
